for now. that was immigration reform -- immigration reform was one of the issues. there are other items he wants to get to. will he get to that? or will republicans and democrats continue to have to have this conversation about coming up with a budget and also getting people signed up for obamacare? >> i'm not sure what immigration reform has to do with a budget deadline that now looms in mid-january. >> in his speech he says we have done it, we have done it, i signed a law, and now let's get back to business. one was a farm bill and one was immigration. >> i think the gop should pass their version of things and let the senate say ya or ya. if obama is willing to come through, let the gop pass it. what will happen is reid will say, no, we are not voting on that. we are not going to put our guys on the spot, our guys and our girls. you have 21 democrat seats at stake here at my latest count. if they lose 10 or 12 of those seats mitch mcconnell becomes the majority leader. that's the last thing obama will want. i don't think he will answer much in the way of entitlement reform because he kno

of the year. one of th@i key items is he wants to renew his push for immigration reform which is stalled in the house. congressman labrador who at one point was supporting it said this it would be crazy for the house leadership to enter into negotiations with obama on tkpwaeugs because his goal -- on immigration because had i goal now is to destroy the republican party. do you agree? >> number one, immigration reform is something the party needs. i don't think anyone would disagree we have a broken immigration system. we do not have mechanisms in place to effectively enforce our immigration laws. what congressman labrador is addressing is something i hear from opponents all the time. you have a government and white house that consistently decided to ignore the law or how to apply it. look at the health care law. they decide which parts of it to apply and which parts not to apply. they issue their own waivers without congressional oversight. what they say is you're going to pass an immigration law that has legalization aspect and some enforcement. what's not to say this white house won't

's good feeling about the efforts that have been made in immigration and, by the way, we're doing this together with the afl-cio. and if you put the business community in the afl-cio together, the labor unions and more of them, guess what, it is a significant interest group. but there's a lot of support but not as much opposition. look, we have to get a few things done in the house. i don't think they'll pass a great big comprehensive bill. but i think they'll do three or four more things that have to be in that bill and then we'll have the opportunity to go to conference. the best thing about it, just think about it, pass the bill in the senate, pass the bill in the house. go to conference, get a result, and have the president sign it. hey, government still works. >> i would suggest that the speaker may be stronger today than it was four weeks ago. numb to ber one, he got a standing ovation last week. conservatives fighting for a month said no one would challenge him now. they're erring out a proverbial balloon that he had to do. the chairman of the judiciary committee like the s

finish the job of fixing our broken immigration system. there's already a broad coalition across america that's behind this effort of comprehensive immigration reform. from business leaders to faith leaders to law enforcement. in fact, the senate has already passed a bill with strong bipartisan support that would make the biggest commitment to border security in our history, would modernize our legal immigration system, make sure that everybody plays by the same rules, makes sure that the folks who came here illegally have to pay a fine and back taxes and meet their responsibilities, that bill has already passed the senate. and economists estimate that if that bill passes law, our economy would be $1.4 trillion in new economic growth. the majority of americans think this is the right thing to do. and it's sitting there waiting for the house to pass it. now, if the house has ideas on how to improve the senate bill, let's hear them. let's start the negotiations. but let's not leave this problem to keep festering for another year or two years or three years. this can and should get done by
